Bernadette Sisk, better known as Noel, is a board certified psychiatric nurse practitioner and has been working with veterans for the past five years. While working her way through school, she worked as a registered nurse in a community based psychiatric crisis center treating poor and indigent persons suffering from a diverse range of mental disorders.
Her passion for helping everyone with mental health issues stems back to her early childhood as she was partially raised by an uncle who suffered from schizophrenia. She works daily to end stigma from the general public and reduce/eliminate shame felt by those who need mental health support.
You can find her listening to Pearl Jam and other grunge bands at home and work as her favorite therapeutic coping mechanism.
You can spend your time alone re-digesting past regrets... or you can come to terms and realize you're the only one who can forgive yourself... makes much more sense to live in the present tense. - Pearl Jam
